Still working on the same app that I'm having the JAD problem on, but pressing ahead.

My application is largely done (well, save for that pesky installation problem), and I have it working in the emulator as I want it. However, my iPAQ 5455 apparently doesn't want to communicate using Bluetooth... which makes sense when you realize that IBM's J9 doesn't implement JSR-82. *sigh*

I'm running with the MIDP 2.0 implementation of J9 on the iPAQ, and am looking at a few of the JSR-82 stacks (including JavaBluetooth.org's stack) - has anyone had any experience implementing these with J9?

Thanks!

Hey Theodore,

"IBM's J9 doesn't implement JSR-82"

Basically, doesn't that mean that you can't use the Bluetooth API. If the device doesn't implement it, then there isn't any API you can download to make it work on that device. The Bluetooth on the device and the KVM cannot work together at all.

Also, another thing to note. Most devices that do implement JSR 82, don't quite implement them correctly or even alike. So what works perfectly to spec and in the emulator fails miserably on the device. And at that point you can try to fix it and sometimes there is no way to make it work on the device. I had that problem with my Siemen's S66 which does implement JSR 82, but doesn't follow the spec.

That's not the answer I wanted to hear. Bah.

The only reason I was asking is that I've seen postings around (as mentioned) of workarounds using other products. *shrugs* Figured best place to ask was here...

Oh well...
